lightly. if you were looking forf john boehner. i would say the op-ed andru naming paul ryan to basically boehner said we're going to the bush tax cuts, th signs are not good forpeople where the party should go. i think romn did better wn he started moderating but that's to be debated i guess with the republican partattention, the op-ed in the got a lot of raising the possibility that she may not have gone back= over as head n lead the tential just a joke or a lot obf cservatives who are still taking her seriously? >> sarah palin is a very interesting person. i think shen a big i'll give you e example, i'm in little rock r work for governor huckรกsab fo four years, a very intesting character because you would hel ot, heoverned by moving the ballwah a 87% docrat legislature and do he mandated arts, another b word, among t conservatives and arts education inhe gave heo are the children of parents who made too much money to get free health care but not enough to afford -- >> richard >> there is governance and moving the ball forward. we need more people like that. of a you just hear h
are going to hit a wall here. this is what governor romney, paul ryan have been talking about. ryan's two years of budget proposals passed by the house, killed by the democrats in the senate saying, look, we know the laws of economics kick in here, and these programs are going to come to a screeching halt because there is no more money, so what we'd like to do now, before the crisis, is try to reform these programs in order to save them, not destroy them. dagen: i said this for years, social security's an easy fix because you're not dealing with people's health. social security is just, you know, changing the retirement age and changing how the initial benefit is calculated, and that's pretty much it. it seems so simple, but it's hard, nevertheless, to get the republicans a large group of them, to get excited about doing this so do you think that it doesn't happen until, well, until it has to happen? that's a few years from now. >> interesting question because i think one of the big untold stories about the election, you know, yes, barack obama was re-elected, and democrats picked up seat
mcconnell, mayor daley there. paul ryan recently indicated he will be a major player in the talks. i think the important thing to notice is the rhetoric has softened quite a bit. certainly over last year when there was just can't other impasse. and in the initial days after the election there was some harding of the provisions but it has softened over the past week and indication there are movements spawned tax revenues and -- programs in an effort to have a deal. host: the topic is the sequestration side of the so- called fiscal cliff talks and there is a tweet that says -- guest: it is definitely not meaningless, the fiscal cliff. there is great meaning in what might happen with going over that cliff. and certainly there are major, major cuts to federal programs on the table that could have a widespread effect. host: and impact on jobs at the federal government? guest: absolutely. now, it may not impact jobs immediately. first of all, it will take some time for the sequester to go into effect and it is not like the agencies will starts with -- flipping a switch. but things like actually
to increase debt or something. the only plan that i think i've supported is the paul ryan bill, which reduces the deficit, brings down the debt, doesn't raise taxes, and it's a plan that mr. chambliss voted for. so i think they caught im, and he said things that didn't make sense. what i have been urging all candidates to do, is to look at the fiscal cliff. we need to have any negotiations about raising taxes or deferring spending restraint, obama wants to spend more on stimulus spending, and to raise taxes. if whatever we discuss needs to be in front of cspan cameras so every american knows exactly what both sides are saying. >> has he talked to you about this? have you had any type of a conversation about it? if you look at this, the question is whether he is reading the cards and asking himself what position he needs to be in in the next reelection campaign. >> well, chambliss was part of what was called the gang of six, three republicans and three democrats that tried to take the simpson bowles outline, and they could not come to an agreement. they wanted all tax increases and no spending
